It’s a pretty kick ass way to honor a rock star that died over a quarter-a-century ago—Metallica has offered up free downloads for one of their 1984 concerts featuring original bassist Cliff Burton. The entire concert is available to download for free at LiveMetallica.com. The one hour show was recorded in France November 22, 1984. Burton died after the band’s tour bus overturned on a rural road in Sweden September

27, 1986.


Video shoot

Photos of Orgy’s film shoot for their new video have surfaced online. The band’s latest single “Grime of the Century” is available via iTunes. The video for the tune was directed by adult-film director Matt Zane. Orgy is planning a five-to-seven week tour beginning in November to promote the single and the new album. There’s still not an official word when a new album will be out.


Soundgarden responds


A couple weeks ago, you may remember Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan coming out saying that Soundgarden was reuniting, touring and putting out their first album in 16 years because they wanted one more go at the trough. Well, Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron finally responded saying he “thinks Billy is a super-smart guy” and he can “understand why people would question bands that reunite … so, I’ll just leave it at that.” That’s it? That’s all you’re gonna say. Really? Well that’s just no fun. I was hoping for a Corgan/Cameron cage match.
